Fresh fruit mix

Fresh summer time fruit salad mix. Serve 2/3 cup with 1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt and you have a great light dessert. I also serve it plain with scrambled eggs for breakfast.

Blueberry Flax Seed Muffins
Very Good 4.5/5

Low-fat buttermilk and applesauce help lower the fat, and the whole-wheat flour and flax seed add fiber. These healthful muffins freeze well!

Friut and Nut Oatmeal Bars
Very Good 4.0/5
(1 rating)

I found this recipe in an old book, but substituted lighter ingredients to reduce the calories. Plus, I didn't have enough of the dried fruit and nuts, so if you want to just use the fruit and nuts you like, that would be just fine! (1 cup fruit, 1 cup nuts)

Good 3.8/5

For even more nutrition, look for "whole ground corn meal" or corn meal that had not been de-germinated. This recipe cuts the oil and doubles the fiber for a great-tasting muffin with 1/2 the calories of regular corn muffins.

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole
Very Good 4.5/5
(65 ratings)

My favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices.

Vanilla Flavoring
Very Good 4.7/5

"Vanilla extract" usually isn't made with real vanilla. The good news is that it's really easy--and affordable--to make your own.
